Juanita Waskow

Formerly of Baker City, 1942-2020

Juanita “Jjhaee” Waskow 77 of Nampa, Idaho, formerly of Baker City, died Jan. 3, 2020, with her family by her side.

There will be a celebration of her life in the spring.

She was born on Jan. 19, 1942, at Tonasket, Washington, the daughter of Everett “Stub” Charles and Anita Eads Bartlemay. Her father was a world champion bronc rider traveling the rodeo circuit.

The family settled at Sisters in 1949. She graduated from Sisters High in 1960, where she was active in speech and drama and won the title of Miss Deschutes County.

Jjhaee had owned two stores called the Maids Quarters in Baker City and Ontario. She moved to Idaho in the late 1980s, becoming an N.L.P. master practitioner, helping many in the community.

She married the love of her life, Thomas Waskow of Nampa, and together they created their own Garden of Eden from bare land. She enjoyed hosting parties and tea with her family, especially her great-granddaughters, always complete with dark chocolate.

Jjhaee touched so many lives and made a lasting impact. She will be truly missed, family members said.

Survivors include her husband, Tom; three daughters, LeAnn Cruz (Phil) of Washougal, Washington: grandchildren, Nolan and Colton, and great-grandson Harrison; Kristy Quigley Moser (Chris) of Caldwell, Idaho: grandchildren, Keesha and Richard, and great-granddaughters, Alana and Nevaeh; Tara Quigley Vanderwiele (Casey) of Baker City, granddaughters, Dawson and Campbell; her brother, Charles Bartlemay of Prineville; and half sister, Dorothy Tate of Mount Angel.
